Can I Have Your Autograph?
I made this card to look like one of the stars on Hollywood's Walk of Fame. Hope it gives that feel. I used Stampin' Up's large star punch and the Double Ended Tag dies from Spellbinders. The stamp set is Great Expectations by Verve Visual. At first I scored the lines, but they didn't stick out enough, so I traced them with a gold gel pen. I thought this card would be perfect for a cousin performing in their first high school musical.
Be sure and check out the Verve Visual blog tomorrow for your first sneak peek of the new sets releasing this Friday, May 16th! I'm just warning you. . .you'll LOVE them! On a personal note, my husband and I are going out tonight for Mother's Day. We spent all day yesterday visiting our mothers/grandmothers, so my husband's taking me out as my gift. I'm so excited since we rarely get to go out without kids! Thanks for stopping by today and have a great day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Great Expectations (Verve Visual); Paper- Basic Black, Kraft (SU), gold (DCWV); Ink- Onyx Black (Versafine); Accessories- Double Ended Tag dies (Spellbinders), gold gel pen, large star punch (SU), gold brads (Making Memories)
